How to WASTE Money
Want to burn money? Go to the mall. Find a major jewelry store and grab a ring out of the display case. Sounds easy, right?

The only problem is that you’ll end up paying an arm and a leg for an engagement ring from a brand name store.

Most big retailers mark up their jewelry to pay for their advertising, their many stores, and their executives’ salaries. They also increase the price based on reputation alone. They figure you’ll pay twice as much just for the privilege of shopping with them.

The thing is, plenty of people are willing to pay such inflated prices. What is more, your average chain retailers won’t even negotiate. The price you see is the price you get. End of story. Don’t like it? Find another dealer.

And that’s precisely what you should do.

Most people buy at a big-name jewelry shop for only one reason: They don’t think there’s any other way. Or perhaps they don’t know where to look—but what if there was a better option? What if you could find an equally stunning diamond for LESS MONEY.

Ah, but you can! At GEM Pawnbrokers.

How to SAVE Money

SAVE Money

It’s simple. Nothing beats pawn shop engagement ring prices. You won’t find better diamonds for less money anywhere.

Not the shop at the mall. Not the discount jeweler. Not online retailers. If you want to do it right, head over to your nearest pawn shop. There you’ll find incredible jewelry at some of the most jaw-dropping prices.

And, by incredible, we also mean unique. Walk into to a large, well-established shop like GEM Pawnbrokers, and you can find a wide selection of new and vintage pieces that will knock your socks off. Here you’ll find diamond rings in the latest designs and in the most classic styles. You’ll discover the most popular cuts and pieces you can’t get anywhere else in the world.

In other words, a pawnbroker offers a jewelry shopping experience like no other.

A Pawn Shop? Really?


You may be wondering about quality. Are pawnbrokers reputable? Can you trust them? Can you buy high-end diamonds from them?

The short answer is “yes”!

As long as you stick with a well-known chain like GEM Pawnbrokers, that is. Why? What’s the difference between GEM and the others?

We’re New York’s largest diamond buyer.

With more than 70 years in the business and over 24 branches, you won’t find a more highly regarded pawn shop anywhere in the country. As reputable as any major jewelry outlet, as affordable as any discount dealer, we give you quality, affordability, and convenience.

Want to impress your loved one? Need peace of mind? Shop for your diamond ring at GEM.

Is It Okay to Buy Second-Hand Jewelry?
The thing about jewelry is that it holds its value. Gold, silver, and diamonds don’t depreciate like your car does or even like designer handbags do.

A high-quality diamond will never lose its luster. A brilliant design will always be beautiful to behold.

The truth is that many buyers find their best jewelry at their local pawn shop.

People sell their jewelry to pawn shops for all sorts of reasons, and the pieces they sell are often some of the best out there. When it comes to diamonds, second-hand doesn’t mean second-rate. The only difference is the price.

So, why do some people pay more for their diamond engagement rings?

Many people waste money simply because they’re impressed by a name they once saw on TV. If they only knew that they could get the same or better jewelry at a lower price, they would have saved a lot of money.

Don’t make their mistake. SAVE today by getting your special someone a precious gem from GEM Pawnbrokers!

How to Buy at a Pawn Shop


Now that you know the “why,” it’s time to figure out the “how.” Here’s a step-by-step guide to buying jewelry from a pawn shop.

  • Set Your Budget

First, you should know how much you’re able and willing to spend. Don’t be vague. Come up with a specific dollar figure. Better yet, research diamond ring prices and set a range—between $700 and $1200, for example, or between $3000 and $4500.

Above all, be reasonable. You want to give your loved one a gift to remember. You don’t want to have sticker shock for the rest of your life.

  • Research Diamonds

Drop by one of GEM Pawnbrokers’ many New York locations to see our selection. Touch the diamonds. Hold them. Feel them. How much do they weigh? What does the color look like? What kinds of styles are there?

You can even go ahead and visit that store in the mall to get a sense of what you’re looking for. Ask the dealer questions. Just be sure not to get sucked in to a bad deal. There’s no reason to buy at retail prices when you can get better for less.

While you’re at it, do some online research. Look up diamonds. Check out cuts, color, quality. Compare prices. Look at comments on social media pages. Ask your friends, your parents, your siblings.

  • Research Pawn Shops

Last, but not least, look up reviews for “pawn shops near me.” Now find the most reputable one in your area. If you live in or near New York, you can skip the hassle and go straight to the largest, most well-respected pawn shop in the region: GEM Pawnbrokers.

  • Negotiate with the Broker

Yes, it’s possible to haggle with a pawn shop. Unlike chain jewelry stores, which rarely if ever negotiate, pawnbrokers are expert wheelers and dealers.

There are plenty of articles out there telling you how to negotiate a purchase at a pawn shop, but, for starters, here’s a tip: Do a little research. At the very least, know how much a certain type of ring is going for. Look online for new and used gems that match your specifications (color, cut, style, quality, etc.). Then you can make an informed offer.

Roses are red. Violets are blue. Shop at GEM to say “I love you.”
